Pine Lodge Gardens land dates back to the 1800 when the mining of tin and copper was taking place. We inherited large mature trees on the estate, many over 300 years old.
There is also a collection of 80 magnolias throughout the gardens with herbaceous borders and many beautiful statues.
Wonderful granite setts are laid in large areas. The 30 acre estate has several gardens:
Japanese Garden: Authentic Japanese garden inspired by a visit to Japan in the 80s.
A Lake: An acre lake which houses a breeding pair of black swans and many water fowl
Top Garden: With a serpentine path winds down to a bridge entwined with a scented Wisteria.
Woodland Garden: The seasons bring thousands of snowdrops followed by native bluebells and camellias. In autumn an acer glade is alive with brilliant colour.
Winter Garden: With over 600 flowering plants.
Cottage Garden: Wth a combination of herbaceous, bulbs, shrubs, trees, ferns and climbers.
